It's affected his guitar-playing and career
The English guitarist and rock star describes his "disastrous" experience with Covid-19 vaccine.
"I felt so alone," he says. He adds that it seems like his family has been "brainwashed."
"I probably shouldn't have had the first jab, but then I was offered the second," said Clapton. Within a week "my hands didn't really work."
Clapton says he already suffered from peripheral neuropathy nerve damage pain prior to vaccination. But when he had the second jab, it ramped up from a scale of 3 to 9 on a scale of ten: "agony," "chronic pain...There's no medication you can take the will help.. very frightening."
Clapton says the after effects still impact him when he touches the guitar, and he now takes sleeping pills now for the pain.
"The vaccine took my immune system and just shook it around again and that's still going on."
As for whether he was warned in advance, he said his doctor didn't say anything about serious adverse reactions, and said the vaccine was "effective and safe." He confirms he got some sort of leaflet prior to the first vaccine and didn't read it.
"I lost the use of my hands for about three weeks...I thought I was in real trouble," he says.
Clapton holds up gloves in the video and says "I can't touch anything cold or hot, I have to use these, otherwise my hands begin to burn and stay burnt all day."
He says he got a document from his doctor to confirm he cannot have another Covid vaccine or a booster.
Clapton says, "I believe in free speech and freedom of movement and choice of movement and life and love and kindness," but with the politicization and polarization of science and medicine, he says he found it difficult to be neutral.
He says he stopped watching TV to tamp down the anxiety and polarization.
"My greatest fear is what will vaccination do to my children," he says.
